./archivers/makeself, Neat script to make self-extracting archives

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.4.0, Package name: makeself-2.4.0, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

makeself.sh is a small shell script that generates a self-extractable
tar.gz archive from a directory. The resulting file appears as a shell
script (many of those have a .run suffix), and can be launched as is.
The archive will then uncompress itself to a temporary directory and an
optional arbitrary command will be executed (for example an installation
script). This is pretty similar to archives generated with WinZip
Self-Extractor in the Windows world. Makeself archives also include
checksums for integrity self-validation (CRC and/or MD5 checksums).

Log message:
Update makeself to 2.4.0.

v2.1.5: Made the md5sum detection consistent with the header code. Check for
the presence of the archive directory. Added --encrypt for symmetric encryption
through gpg (Eric Windisch). Added support for the digest command on Solaris 10
for MD5 checksums. Check for available disk space before extracting to the
target directory (Andreas Schweitzer). Allow extraction to run asynchronously
(patch by Peter Hatch). Use file descriptors internally to avoid error messages
(patch by Kay Tiong Khoo).

v2.1.6: Replaced one dot per file progress with a realtime progress percentage
and a spining cursor. Added --noprogress to prevent showing the progress during
the decompression. Added --target dir to allow extracting directly to a target
directory. (Guy Baconniere)

v2.2.0: First major new release in years! Includes many bugfixes and user
contributions. Please look at the project page on Github for all the details.

v2.3.0: Support for archive encryption via GPG or OpenSSL. Added LZO and LZ4
compression support. Options to set the packaging date and stop the umask from
being overriden. Optionally ignore check for available disk space when
extracting. New option to check for root permissions before extracting.

v2.3.1: Various compatibility updates. Added unit tests for Travis CI in the
GitHub repo. New --tar-extra, --untar-extra, --gpg-extra,
--gpg-asymmetric-encrypt-sign options.

v2.4.0: Added optional support for SHA256 archive integrity checksums.

Log message:
Add SHA512 digests for distfiles for archivers category

Problems found with existing distfile for eagle:
No changes made to these distinfo files.

Otherwise, existing SHA1 digests verified and found to be the same on
the machine holding the existing distfiles (morden).  All existing
SHA1 digests retained for now as an audit trail.
